You can now get all the sport you love in one place with Sky.

For the first time ever, they have rolled out amazing TV packages for sports fans which combine Sky Sports and BT Sport channels.

Not only will you get eight Sky Sports channels offering live Premier League action, F1, golf majors and more, but you can also enjoy BT 1, 2, 3 and BT Sport ESPN — all in HD as standard.

As a new customer, you can join Sky TV and get Sky Sports and BT Sport for £47 a month for 18 months*.

If you’re a football fan, not only will you be able to watch the Premier League, the Sky Bet Championship, the Scottish Premiership, Euro 2020 qualifiers and the UEFA Nations League, but with the addition of BT Sport, you can catch all the UEFA Champions League and Europa League action too, plus matches from the Emirates FA Cup, the German Bundesliga and the Women’s Super League.

Sky Basketball

Golf fans will be captivated by The Masters, The Open and this year’s Ryder Cup, which will see Europe battle America at Whistling Straits, while if you love your motorsport, there’s F1 on Sky and MotoGP on BT Sport.

It’s another big year for cricket, and Sky will bring you coverage of the ICC T20 World Cup in Australia, plus The Hundred and the Vivo Indian Premier League, while you can catch all the action from the NBA and the Vitality Netball Superleague too.

With BT Sport, meanwhile, you can get engrossed in Gallagher Premiership Rugby, UFC and WTA tennis.

Whatever your sporting passions are, you can sit back and enjoy a huge year of sport.

What’s on

Sky The Masters

UEFA Champions League: the Champions League draws to a close, with Europe’s elite vying for the biggest prize in club football. Will an English club claim the trophy this year?

The Masters: the first and most prestigious major championship tees off on April 9th at the iconic Augusta National in Georgia. You can follow the action on Sky Sports Golf — the only place to enjoy live coverage of all four majors.

Gallagher Premiership Rugby: rugby union fans are in for a treat with live coverage of every televised Premiership match, as well as both the European Champions Cup and European Challenge Cup.

Everything you need to know

How soon can I start watching BT Sport?

For existing Sky customers, it can take up to four hours after you activate BT Sport with Sky to view the channels on your Sky box. If you’re new to Sky, your BT Sport service will be available following your TV installation. Ahead of this, you can start to enjoy the great Sky and BT Sport content on Sky Go.

I’m already a BT Sport customer — will I be billed twice?

To avoid being billed twice for BT Sport, you’ll need to cancel your existing BT Sport subscription with your other provider. You can delay the activation of BT Sport on Sky by 30 days to allow you to cancel any existing subscriptions.

I’m already a BT customer — what will happen to my existing recordings when I move over to Sky?

You’ll be able to access recordings from April 2019 onwards. Anything recorded before this won’t be available.

Sky Football

Is BT Sport available to watch in UHD?

BT Sport is available in HD as standard. Unfortunately, BT Sport Ultimate (in UHD) is not currently available through Sky.

Can I buy BT Sport Pay Per View events through Sky?

You can access BT Sport Box Office events via Sky, but you’ll be billed by BT for BT PPV events. If you have never bought a BT Sport Box Office event before for viewing on your Sky box, you’ll first need to register with BT. Once you’ve booked your first event at the point of registering, you’ll be able to book future BT events directly through your Sky box.

Can I get access to the BT Sport app?

The BT Sport Pack gives you BT Sport 1, 2 and 3, plus BT Sport ESPN. These are available to watch on your Sky Q box and Sky Go. It does not include access to the BT Sport app. To access the BT Sport app, you’ll need to take out a separate subscription with BT.

Before you sign up to the new Sky Sports and BT Sport package, make sure you check to see if you can earn some cashback with us.

* New 18 month minimum terms. Prices may change during this period. Offer ends 12/3/20. Set-up: £20.
